Just in case you were wondering how scratch resistent the screen on the BlackBerry Curve is, it looks to be pretty resistent. I, however, still STRONGLY reccomend that, if you have a BlackBerry Storm or plan on getting one, you invest in some type of screen protector like Invisible Shield or something similar.
The BlackBerry Storm actually comes with a screen protector already on it but it appears to be the kind that will wear out over time. Do yourself a favor and buy a screen protector. They are definitely worth the $7.00 to $20.00 that you will pay for them.
I’ve been waiting 2 weeks to get the InvisibleSHIELD, but they had a booth at the local mall installing Ghost Armors, so I had them do it there. I’ve never used the InvisibleSHIELD before, but I got to say that I really like the Ghost Armor.
Screen looks resistant. I’d still never put a $400-$600 phone in my pocket with keys. This is why business users carry holsters.
I freaked myself out yesterday. Put my Storm in my pocket with my iPod. When I took them both out the Storm had NOTICEABLE (visual and by feel) scratches on the screen. At first I freaked out, but then calmed down once I realized it was only a shipping screen protector that was scratched – not the actual screen.
If you have any questions about the invisibleSHIELD or any other ZAGG products, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I need to see it with my own eyes.
If its true, this is very good!
I just bought a new Blackberry Storm and the Verizon sales girl sold me on a screen protector by iShieldz; I visited their website at http://www.ishieldz.com and they claim to offer a lifetime guarantee. I guess we’ll see if I ever have to take them up on it. The upsell cost me an extra $14.97, which is not bad considering what I paid for the Storm.
to everyone saying he didnt push very hard because the screen didn’t light up. the storm only recognizes warm fingers, not cool objects, even if the screen clicks. if you dont believe me and dont want to put y0ur phone threw this abuse, try clicking it with an eraser
It’s true, I’ve had my storm for over a year and I used to freak out and put protective shields on it, when my last one wore out I didn’t replace it. It has been protective cover free for over 4 months and there is not a single scratch on this thing. I put it in my purse with keys, and other objects that may scratch it. The screen seems to be unscratchable. Compared to my friend who just got a blackberry pearl a few months ago and she has scratches already.
Old post but I agree. Screens are scratch-resistant but not scratch proof. Price of replacing your screen or your device is not worth the risk, unless you are willing to live with an annoying scratch. Screen protectors are cheap, easy to install, and you won’t even know they are there.
